Every one needs to experience a teddy bears’ picnic at some point , right ? 🧸 🧺 🥪🍇🍓🍰☕️🫖

This is always my go to type of activity where I just put everything out on a tray that is already altogether in a box or her play kitchen .

We even watched and ...sang along to the Teddy Bears picnic song 🎶 🎵 which took me back a few years .

👧🏼🏡🌲🧸🧸🧸We then adapted it by adding in porridge and my daughter pretended she was Goldilocks .

What is your go to activity for the tuff tray when you need something quick and easy ?

❄️🧊🐻‍❄️Arctic Tuff tray 🐻‍❄️🧊❄️💙 or 🧊 ⛸ Arctic Peppa skating rink adventure

This was so popular with my two kids , so much so they wanted it for days .

I was so lucky with the weather on this one .

❄️ I just left the tray on ...our outdoor dining set overnight filled with water and white paint and gave it a swirl around before I left it
❄️ Then left it overnight to freeze , it was as simple as that (weather dependent obviously -Baltic English weather definitely a bonus 😂👌🏻) .
❄️In the morning I added blocks of ice I found in buckets and toys around the garden to make the ice bergs -this wasn’t planned but worked perfectly .
❄️ And we added our Peppa pig winter characters which we set in muffin trays in the freezer overnight or our polar animals

✋🏻👌🏻👆🏻Fine Motor Skills 👌🏻👆🏻✋🏻

Fine motor skills are so important as they involve and strengthen the muscles that control the hand, fingers, and thumb. This can help children in so many ways - with their writing , drawing , and with daily tasks like ...zipping up coats etc

I put a range of fine motor Skill activities out for them to experiment with and I watched them to see how well they did and which they enjoyed the most . We will develop each activity over the weekend and play with one at a time to develop each type of muscle movement -pinching , tweezing , squeezing , pulling , pushing .

The activities i have put out involve :
⭐️Threading buttons and stacking buttons
⭐️Threading pipe cleaners through a colander
⭐️Lacing and threading beads on to the hedgehog
⭐️Lacing fruit and vegetables , numbers , letters and animals onto string
⭐️Using tweezers to place Pom pom in an ice cube tray - I will also add the wooden lacing balls for my daughter so it gives her more of a challenge
⭐️Using a pipette to add droplets of coloured water to support blocks
